We just returned from a weekend camping trip and loved nearly everything about it: campsites, bicycle rentals, activities, hiking, clean and free bathhouses. The only downside was the bell tower going off every 15 minutes from 8am to 5pm with a bonus concert at 10am and noon. When I camp I like forget about time and just relax in nature... More

We spent several hours here. Really had a great time. There were crafters in the cabins who obviously loved their trades. The museum and information was well done and informative. Worth a visit.

All of the reviews posted here are accurate. This is a lovely place to visit. I enjoyed the many miles of trails along the Suwannee and winding through the wilderness. Unfortunately for the campers, such as myself, the campground is not prepared for any accumulation of rain. At least one third of the campsites immediately fill with water to the... More

This place is beautiful and rich with history. The dioramas are amazing, and do not look their age. The pianos and instruments on display are truly breathtaking. The park outside the Center is absolutely amazing, as well. If passing through north Florida I would suggest stopping here if you have the time. Very relaxing place, and great for families or...

We stopped at this park while in the area and were impressed by the friendliness of the ranger. The park was very well maintained, very clean, and very quiet. The river was pretty and the bell tower was also very nice. The kayak ramp looked like it would be a chore to use, but otherwise, we have nothing bad to... More

We chose this park as a place to camp for one night stopover only, but once we were there we wished we could add another night or two because we liked it so much. We were tent camping, and our site was dry and level. The bathhouse was very nice and clean, with showers that had doors with locks, always... More

Ok so the good parts. This is an awesome venue. Came here for the Florida Folk Festival (which was pretty cool except the amphitheater sound system was terrible). Had a blast. Loved the trees. The river. The people. At the urging of the MC, I took the time to visit the museum which is more tuned to adults than kids.... More

This campground offers many museums to tour. They have different events going on at various times. All the camp sites seemed nice and well kept (we had site 29). Lots of trails to hike and there is a canoe launch...Unfortunately we didn't get to canoe because the area was severely flooded at that time. We hiked the the trails we... More

This park will always have special memories as it was the kick off to a birthday tradition to go combining for my daughter. Years ago she learned to ride a bike here. The proximity to the Florida Trail is one of its assets and the cabins are super comfortable even when activities are cut short due to rain.

On our way back to Georgia from our most recent visit to Florida, my wife and I decided to take a side trip to Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. I am so glad that we did. First, the entrance fee ($5 for both us at the time of our visit) was an incredible deal. Second, the museum with... More
